There are 3 places, all contiguous to each other of the name of Flemington - concerning which there is a Tradition or conjecture that a colony of Flemish merchants had established themselves here, and imparted their name to their new settlement. As it is well known that the wool marts of these enterprising people went by the name of Redhalls, the existence of a place in the immediate neighbourhood is corroborative of that tradition - One of these Redhalls stood at the bottom of the street called Woolmarket, in Berwick. From the circumstance of the three Flemingtons lying on the side of the great hilly range on the south border of the parish, it is likewise probable that this tract was chosen by them account of its being well adapted to sheep pasture, altho [although] now it is under tillage to the very top of the hill. There is still an extensive sheep walk on the other side of the hill, called Lamberton Moor which belongs to the neighbouring parish Mordington. The Flemings had probably chosen the North side of the hill, on account of its vicinity to the port of Eyemouth. - Statist acct. [Statistical Account] Ber. [Berwickshire] Page 137 --
